Lotions/ Creams -AmLactin -Daily Moisturizing Body Lotion


This seems to help keep my body breakouts at bay. It also seems to be helping heal the laser hair removal burn I have. My main issue with it is the smell! I can put this on right after I shower, and I no longer feel fresh and clean. I will repurchase this, but I will also keep looking for similar products that smell better.

Lotions/ Creams -AmLactin -Rapid Relief Restoring Lotion + Ceramides


Really gentle moisturizing lotion-cream to help with irritation and healing. I quite like it as it did not cause any irritation and did really hydrate. However, the mild scent of it is unpleasant. Remains a tad sticky feeling for a short while after application but that dissipates into a soft touch. I think I would shy away from using it in humid weather, but it’s very helpful in the dry wintertime.

What impresses me the most about this body lotion is how effective it is. Anytime I see noticeable results after using something just one time, I know I've found something good.

I bought a bottle of Amlactin because I had some rough patches and some discoloration that I wanted to get rid of. The rough patches vanished literally the next day, and the discoloration was significantly faded. That was after one use. I've continued to use this lotion off-and-on for the last few months, and I have to say I'm very pleased with the results. It's very moisturizing too!

Four lippies instead of five because I do have a few complaints. This lotion goes on a little sticky at first. The stickiness goes away after a few minutes, but then the smell kicks in. This stuff smells very strongly of ammonia! And that's not a pretty smell. The smell fades after 45 minutes or so, but that's why I don't use this lotion all the time.

My last complaint is about the price. Man, this stuff is expensive! But it works beautifully and I have to say that I'd buy it again.

Honestly this isn't good as the regular Amlactin.

I had really high hopes for this product, because I'm a real big fan of ceramides, but this product honestly wasn't good.

First of all, it doesn't seem to exfoliate as well as the regular Amlactin. And even with the addition of ceramides, it doesn't seem to provide any additional moisture.

Also, this product smells worse. Normal Alactin has that slight amonia smell. This product smells a bit different, and whatever it is, it somehow smells worse.

Honestly I'm just gonna buy original Amlactin from now on. Works better and smells better.
